Did you use your cloth protection for bleeding after birth? Did it cope?

I think you can get specific ones for pp. Do you have a lot of night ones? Not sure normal ones would cope for the first few days.

No, no nighttime specific ones (because my periods are never that heavy / seem to ease off at nighttime -- i suspect i am v.lucky!)
Hmmm maybe i should get a few disposable maternity pads and can then mix&match - might also persuade midwifes i havent upped & left for planet hippy. LOL

Might be hippyish but they are so much comfier!

I didn't know these existed! Where do you get them from?/ what ones are reccommended?
16/08/2013 at 08:27
I have ones from wee notions, eco rainbow and little gumnut. Love them all!

I'd heard of cloth for babies but never sanitary cloth. well you learn something new every day!

I'd recommend them Carole - comfort wise, penny-pinching wise and general saving the planet wise

I've been pondering these on and off for ages. The only thing I'm not sure about it washing - do you put them in with the main wash or hand wash them?

I usually put them in with nappies or you can buy mesh bags to wash them in alongside others.
I know the thought of them puts people off but they are very comfy and chemical free so can make periods lighter apparently. Ive noticed less pain. No harm trying them :-)
